IT no. 271, one of the longest cars on the roster, turns from Main Street in Champaign into Neil on its way to the electrified Wabash and Illinois Central tracks which will start it west on its way to Decatur.  The date is 1936, toward the end of all street running in Champaign.  Note the partially completed new city building in the background, and in the lower picture, the early model traffic light governing the intersection.
